The Eames Shell chair has become a much coveted item, owing to its wide ranging versatility and the range of bases the shells were offered upon. Upholstered versions were introduced with the assistance of the iconic Alexander Girard not long after the original, standard fiberglass shells were released and they came in many various forms. From all fabric to all vinyl, Girard utilised all he could to build an eclectic range of Eames tops for Herman Milller.
This all black beauty is in very good condition for its age with only a quick clean up required to make it shine again.

Due to their being so popular, Eames shells are steadily gaining in value, though the rate at which they do so is determined by many factors. Aspects such as the age, origin, colour and condition of the shell all play a part in evaluating the shells worth. This particular shell is in very good condition and should prove to be a worthy investment.
